SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS PRINTMAKERS: CONTINUUM

17 November - 13 December 2017

An exhibition of contemporary prints responding to artists from previous generations who have had connections with the Southern Tablelands region between Sydney and Canberra.

The 25 printmakers each chose a different artist as the starting point from their work.  Choices ranged from the possum skin cloaks crafted by the original aboriginal inhabitants of the area, to colonial artists such as Joseph Lycett, to some of the greats of Australian art - Lloyd Rees, Arthur Boyd, Fred Williams and Brett Whiteley, as well as photographers such as Frank Hurley, ceramic artist Gwen Hanson-Piggot, sculptors Tom Bass and Bert Flugelman and assemblage artist Rosalie Gascoigne.

The resulting prints brought together in this exhibition are as wide-ranging and diverse as the work of the artists who inspired them.
